My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

My Mean Angora Bunny

Those of you who are joining this blog from one of my others know that we have a French Angora rabbit, a doe. She's about 5 months old, beautiful red eyes (she's an albino), 4 very sharp front teeth, and has a temper worse than a half-starved panther!

All of a sudden she's decided that (1) she doesn't want to come out of her cage so we can comb her (2) there MUST be an escape route if only she can scratch at the metal/tin cage often enough (3) the same hand that reaches into the cage to give her a carrot and some greens and hay MUST also want to take it right back out and therefore, must charge at the hand and bite it!

She's beautiful and healthy, but boy... what an attitude! Are we truly sure we want to raise a whole herd of these bunnies? Maybe an angora goat would be easier!

Hmmm. Something to think about!

Hi Vikki. I like the new blog. And the name is perfect. I would love to be sitting there drinking coffee (I never learned to like tea) listening to the birds sing and talking among friends. Since the distance of what 3000 miles makes that impossible I will just join in the blog.
I am going to stick to my guns for now and say I don't want anything else I have to feed or clean up after. My husband is enough!

Thanks Grits. Please feel free to drink coffee - I could go for some instant french vanilla from time to time!

And.. boy howdy! About the cleaning up thing ... well, I'd say more but Hubby might read this!

Have a great Monday!
